THE SELF ENERGIZED UNIT:
The use of copper plate (Cu) separated by brass bolts to a plate of magnesium (Mg) in water considered hard, calcium carbonate(CaCO3), produces an electrical current by the creation of hydrogen ions and magnesium cations by the negatively-charged pure magnesium bar. The creation of copper ions and some oxygen ions by the positively-charged copper plate and the magnesium becomes a donor bar and releases pure magnesium Mg++
HOW SCALE IS CONTROLED:
Further object of observation is the provision of calcium in tap water in a form usable by the human body and plant life, while at the same time reducing forms of calcium which contribute to the scaling of pipes, drip irrigation systems, water heaters, and the like. Calcium bicarbonate, Ca((HCO3)2), is the soft form of calcium. This is the form of calcium most readily used by plants, animals and humans. Calcium carbonate, CaCO3, is the form of calcium considered "hard," and which causes scale. In the presence of heat, as in a water heater, bicarbonate ions break down into carbonate ions. The magnesium and copper, put excess hydrogen ions and free electrons in the water. The excess hydrogen ions help the bicarbonate ions hold onto their hydrogen atoms and not convert into carbonate ions when heated. The action of these ions produced by the copper and magnesium reaction in the water, similarly tends to reduce existing hard scale as well as controlling its formation, which is especially useful in applications such as with coffee vending machines, ice makers, boilers, and other uses where scale buildup is of primary concern.
Another object of observation is the elimination of salt (NaCl) and the removal of chlorine and other toxic contaminants from the water. Chlorine is corrosive to pipes and equipment to which it is exposed. It has also been linked to many health concerns. Yet it is frequently added to municipal water systems to treat water. Other toxic contaminants may be found in the ground water as well.
The use of copper and magnesium in a one pass through system will help reduce salts and contaminant to the environment and not raise PH.
